Gilpin Spice Dish - Soup Taster Trio

TOMATO CHE SAAR
Wood roast tomatoes tempered with cumin, ginger, lemongrass and onion to create a sweet
and sour harmony then added with coconut milk for a smooth velvety texture, served with croutons,
fried onions, coriander leaves.

DTOM YUM (HOT AND SOUR) SOUP
Classic Thai tiger prawn hot and sour soup, which feels like a tonic due to the depth of fresh flavours
from the prawn stock, prawns, fresh lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, floral galangal, some serious
heat (if you wish) fresh birds eye chilli, and fresh lime juice at the very last minute.

CHINESE SWEETCORN SOUP
Simple yet flavour full, and one of the healthiest and easiest soups to prepare – the trick is in the
potent stock, which is full of aromatic vegetable goodness.

the spice

With a fascinating history as a centre of the spice trade, Cumbrian cuisine has a rich heritage, and local specialities have long included exotic spices with favourites such as Cumberland sausage, potted shrimps, Grasmere gingerbread, and sticky toffee pudding.

Gilpin Spice is inspired by that history and the dishes follow the spice trail along the silk road – from Whitehaven all the way to Japan. We personally source quality spices from farms who believe in nature, and have picked the tastiest dishes of every nation, guarding the authenticity of each dish whilst giving it a unique twist of our own.
